How to cook our MIGHTY MINCE and POWER BALLS

Our MIGHTY MINCE or POWER BALLS no-bone raw dog food recipes are fully safe to cook, ideal for switching fussy dogs to raw, or for poorly dogs who temporarily need a cooked diet.

The bone has been replaced with powdered eggshells, a natural source of calcium to ensure they're fully balanced and complete according to the highest FEDIAF nutritional guidelines. Both available in four varieties: Chicken (Low Fat), Beef, Lamb and Wild Boar (more coming soon!)

As our MIGHTY MINCE or POWER BALLS contain no ground bone, you can cook them just the way you would cook your own mince. There are multiple ways you can do this:

1. COOK IN OVEN. Our mince trays are oven proof. To cook from frozen, preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4 (fan assisted) and cook for 1 hour. To cook once mince is defrosted, preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4 (fan assisted) and cook for 20-25 minutes. Allow to cool down in your dog's bowl before serving.

2. FRY ON STOVETOP. Use water instead of oil to stop the mince from sticking to the pan. On slow to medium heat, cook the mince or meatballs for about 4 to 5 minutes until the aromas start to release from the natural browning or until the meat is fully cooked and brown all over. Allow to cool down in your dog's bowl before serving.

3. ADD HOT WATER. Or add our warmed TASTY Broth that's been warmed up to the mince or meatballs for varied eating experience for your dog

4. COOK IN MICROWAVE. If you’re cooking the meals in the microwave, remember to peel off the lid on its tray before heating for 3 to 4 minutes. Stir halfway through cooking. Allow to cool down before serving.

All Poppy's Picnic raw dog food recipes are balanced according to FEDIAF guidelines and made using fresh and high quality raw ingredients that are suitable for human consumption making them safe to handle in the kitchen and can be stored in your fridge or freezer. It goes without saying that it's essential to take normal hygiene precautions when handling any raw or cooked meat, clean utensils and surfaces it comes into contact with carefully and wash your hands thoroughly after handling.

After you have defrosted and cooked your dog's food, you can store it in the fridge for 4 days.

Rocket is vomiting bile and eating grass. So I have cooked the mince for a day or two. His tummy seems to have settled. Shall I keep on cooked or move back to raw.
